The start of a new month means it’s time once again for the Android Security Patch update. Google has started to roll out April 2016 security update for their Nexus family as part of its Android Security Bulletin Monthly release process.

As always, Google has released the official factory images to its server for the most of the Nexus devices. Once you updated your device, the security patch level will be moved to April 02, 2016 or later.

The update brings new build number including MHC19Q, MMB29X, LMY49J, and more. It depends on your device that you are using.
